(CNN) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Georgia, the former Soviet Republic, on Monday, the last stop in a five-country tour of former Soviet bloc nations.

Clinton is due to discuss "regional peace and stability" with government officials in Georgia, which fought a short war with Russia in the summer of 2008 over a separatist region of Georgia which is backed by Moscow.

She arrives in the Caucasus nation after visiting its neighbors Armenia and Azerbaijan. She also held meetings in Ukraine and Poland on the five-nation trip.

Clinton told reporters Saturday she hasn't let her demanding schedule get in the way of what she calls her most important task: wedding planning.

"It's a very happy time for my family," Clinton said during an interview with Polish media. "It (the wedding) truly is the most important thing in my life right now."

Clinton's daughter, Chelsea, is engaged to marry Marc Mezvinsky, the son of former members of Congress Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky of Pennsylvania and Ed Mezvinsky of Iowa.

"I have been able to fit in tastings and dress selections and all the other things the mother of the bride has to do," Clinton said.

  1. Save America, impeach the treasonous republicans

    Like Hillary, George Bush was also able to multi-task. He could clear brush one day, and find time to golf the next day.

    As long as she just discusses, don't touch anything and I don't believe it is necessary to apologize unless she is just like another libertard with Bush Derangement Syndrome. She can always apologize for being part of the most corrupt, inept administration in history. The ineptness of Carter, combined with the corruption of Harding and Grant and Obozo has not even been in office for 2 years yet.

    That's our Hillary. She is awesome and I would love to vote for her after President Obama's second term. We can only dream. Work hard, Ms. Clinton, and make America proud!

    Just like any other working Mom, Clinton balances family and work. I wish Chelsea a long and happy marriage. The Clintons appear to have done a wonderful job of raising, her despite the extreme public scrutiny. No matter which Party or political side they take, public servants have to be tough and dedicated. It's a thankless job.

    BIden has nipped this Clintonista's aspirations in the bud. The only way she can win in 2012 is if the the Obamist media, which includes CNN, switches alegience.

    Madam Secretary,
    Make maximum use and spend our money because Barack wants to spend money which we do not have and our children and grandchildren will pay for your trips.
